On June 30, the landscape of downtown Indianapolis will change, with the dedication of the Glick Peace Walk. This major new public art display, running along Walnut Street, on the north side of the Scottish Rite Cathedral, is a significant development in the evolution of the city’s groundbreaking project, the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene and Marilyn Glick.
The Peace Walk represents the desire of philanthropists Gene and Marilyn Glick to create a legacy of celebrating the lives of 14 Americans who changed the world through peaceful pursuits. In the process, it spurred the creation of one of the most ambitious public art displays in the city’s history.
Documentary producer Kim Jacobs follows the creation of the works by Hoosier artists, and the creation of a new landmark in the city. Designed by Indy’s own Rundell Ernstberger Associates, the program takes viewers to the artists’ workshops as they work to bring alive the Glicks’ vision.
The Glick Peace Walk is the latest extension of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, a one-of-a-kind eight-mile urban bicycle and pedestrian trail that connects cultural districts and destinations throughout Indianapolis. The documentary also provides an update on this multi-year project that’s changing the landscape, the culture and the national reputation of Indianapolis.
Together in Peace is made possible by a generous grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
